Surgical Challenges of Heart Mate 3 Pump Implantation in Aneurysmally Changed Heart Ventricles
Keywords:aneurysms, thromboembolic, LVAD implantation
We presented surgical treatment of three patients indicated for implantation of a permanent mechanical circulatory support device and with the associated left ventricular aneurysms. In order to evade the left ventricular rupture, adverse thromboembolic events and provide safe implantation of the inflow cannula, LVAD HM3 implantation together with the reconstruction of the left ventricular aneurysmal wall was performed in two patients. Regarding the third patient, LVAD implantation upon the reconstruction of the left ventricular wall was abandoned because there was no safe location for placement of the
